Re: dayton um18-22 question

A Mic and Rew are pretty revealing.

Buying more cheap stuff to get better sound is like challenging a dragon with a pocket knife.

Yep. Just when you thought you knew what was happening in your room...

No eq...I thought about getting a mini DSP but decided to hold off because I'm setting up atmos and getting a marantz 7010 or 7702 or 8802a.
It's not like that's an either/or situation, you need the DSP.

I thought the DSP was a must on ported sub's but not on sealed. Correct me if I am wrong. I did a lot of research off this site when I built them.

You need it on both. If you're starting from scratch, a sealed build will have a rolloff down low that you will have to counter with the DSP. Likewise on the ported, you may have better response down low, but once you get below the tuning frequency you're going to have to use the DSP to purposely roll it off to prevent driver damage. Plus, outside of hoping that Audessey fixes stuff for you, there's really no other way to fix room mode issues. There's really no sub that doesn't need a DSP. Can you listen to stuff without one? Sure you can.

Thanks for the info. I ordered a mini DSP.

I got confused. I assumed the box acted as a high pass filter. It can't hurt anyway.
